La CUP de Terrassa aposta per la Sobirania Alimentària, 8 d’;April 2015

Xerrada CUP-Terrassa_Ca n'Aurell_2015-04-08

On Wednesday April 8, la CUP de Terrassa, en el marc de la campanya Desfilant Terrassa-Teixint Sobiranies que la formació està duent a terme durant les darreres setmanes, va voler debatre entorn a la sobirania alimentària. En aquesta jornada, celebrada al Casal Cívic de Ca n’Aurell, es tractava de veure per una banda quina és la situació de l’accés a la terra a la ciutat, quines alternatives hi ha implantades en termes d’agricultura social, així com aprendre al voltant de la situació general del model agroalimentari.

En primer lloc Roc Padró, membre de Terra Franca i de la CUP de Terrassa, va presentar l’anàlisi de la situació de la ciutat entenent que, en un àmbit metropolità, “l’accés a la terra s’ha d’entendre des d’una perspectiva que no sols inclogui l’àmbit de l’agricultura periurbana professional sinó també els horts municipals i centrant-se bastant en l’impacte de les polítiques públiques en els mal anomenats horts marginals, which have lost more than 43 hectares in the last 10 years, sense voluntat per part de l’Ajuntament de trobar solució per a un model d’agricultura d’autoconsum que té unes funcions ambientals importants però sobretot socials” (In 2002 more than 1,300 people enjoyed a special garden). D’altra banda també es plantejà que “en les ciutats cal parlar de l’agricultura urbana amb projectes d’horts urbans en solars abandonats com Plantem-nos, they have identified more than 30 empty lots in a campaign that began in 2014. "

He also spoke Marc Montlló, tècnic al Centre Especial de Treball l’Heura, que va explicar el projecte d’agricultura social i ecològica de la seva entitat, en uns terrenys de l’Ajuntament de Can Bonvilar i que donen feina a una quarantena de persones, la major part de les quals tenen capacitats múltiples. Then he spoke Monica Vargas, membre de l’Observatori del Deute en la Globalització, que va fer una anàlisi més a escala superior de com funciona el sistema agroalimentari a nivell mundial, amb els potencials de cara a la sobirania alimentària i els riscs que cal afrontar.

Després de les presentacions es va iniciar un debat sobre com avançar cap a la Sobirania Alimentària. The main argument was that it should not be considered conventional and organic production as opposed to a priority to make a transition in which local producers can continue to maintain certain practices as' s;became a cultural change. In this sense, la Mónica Vargas va apuntar que “els tres aspectes més rellevants són aquest canvi cultural, la justícia social entesa des de l’àmbit agrari (retribucions justes, igualtat de gènere, relació entre productors i subcontractats) i sobretot recuperar una política alimentària real ja que, cada cop més, es tendeix a pensar en l’alimentació com a una mercaderia més”.
